I have Fedora 31 with Gnome Extensions installed so I can use desktop icons. What I used to do was copy links from /usr/share/applications to ~/Desktop so I can have links to applications on my desktop.
This still works, but it is not showing the proper icon. Say for Cheese for example. I copy /usr/share/applications/org.gnome.Cheese.desktop to my desktop. Then I right click and “Allow Launching”. Then I can launch it but the desktop icon doesn’t change to the Cheese Icon.
I know this is a minor issue but has been bothering me for weeks.
